Job profiles investment management


Allianz Investment Management SE (AIM) bundles the investment function and offers multiple job opportunities. Learn more about our key functions.
  • AIM invests the premiums from insurance contracts according to the insurance liabilities they generate. The ALM teams translate the requirements of liabilities into capital market dimensions. This is done via state-of-the-art quantitative models complemented by thorough qualitative analysis.

    The output of the models is then translated into the Strategic Asset Allocation which is the main driver of our long-term investment results, for every insurance portfolio. To ensure a holistic integration of capital market characteristics and developments in insurance products the ALM experts are a key element of the product development.

  • The IS teams – dedicated asset class experts and portfolio managers – develop and implement the investment strategy across all asset classes. IS develops secular capital market views that serve as input in the ALM models and enriches the liability-driven Strategic Asset Allocation by long-term investment strategies. The IS teams analyze capital market developments to derive investment recommendations for portfolio management.

    The resulting local asset allocations comprise more than 50 investment strategies. Furthermore, the IS teams are actively searching for investment opportunities in new asset classes, also referred to as “sourcing”. In sum, IS positions the portfolios to benefit from medium to long-term capital market opportunities, while managing market risks.

     

     

  • At Allianz, we differentiate between Investment Management and Asset Management. The AMM team takes up the asset allocations and translates those into mandates for Asset Managers. AMM oversees selecting, reviewing and managing performance of our external and internal Asset Managers on a global basis.
  • To allow for a global portfolio steering, the FC teams independently control the investment risk as well as the investment return. The FC teams develop investment plans based on the Strategic Asset Allocation, monitor their implementation and thus deliver crucial information for decision-making and organizational learning.
  • Operations are the execution “backbone”, orchestrating all relevant steps from the settlement of transactions and the management of liquidity, to ensuring timely, accurate and reliable delivery of an investment into our portfolios. The OPS teams also drive the implementation of processes and related IT systems (e.g., new investments and instruments).
